In the movie Amelie, the title character gives a list of things she loves. One of those is to find moments in movies that other people might miss. I love that too. In this movie you'll see some of the "hidden" moments in the films of the Prelinger Archive.

Some of these are more forgettable than others, but it's definitely worth a look. "A Visit to Santa" definitely deserves to be seen twice!

Lot of time on your hands, eh?
Really, dude, you must be *really* easily pleased. Most of what you point out either isn't all that great, or can't be noticed.

Very short editing mishaps
It seemed that the ending was 1/2 of the film.
Some of these were editing mishaps but they were all errors in judgment. I concur with the other reviewer in that I would like to see a sequel.

although i gotta admit this is a great selection of scenes, especially the dog been thrown into the kits :) i think the whole bit in amelie was a comment on the the whole digital versus celluloid and the fact that when you film digital you loose that certain personality that is only on celluloid.
not seeing whats goin on outside...
but great stuff and keep it coming spuzz

The Reviewer as Movie Maker
At last I know who Spuzz is, the excellent writer and unparallelled reviewer of movies in the Internet Archive. He has given me many keys to the Jam Handy movies, for example. Now I've discovered that he has created mashup movies. This one is nice and mirrors subjects often discussed in his reviews, for example the strangely treated animals in the Chevrolet Leader News. A cute movie.

There is love in this
This was obviously assembled by someone who loves classic films. Fun to watch!

Can we have some more like this, and longer

Hey, Look Over There!
Spuzz, a regular reviewer of Prelinger films, put together this short compilation of unscripted, behind-the-main-action moments from Prelinger films. These are fun moments, though they could have been edited a little bit tighter. This really makes me want to put together my own compilation films, though. It also makes me really want to check out A Visit to Santathis film looks hideous! And I love the ending!
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.

Excellent highlighting of classic Prelinger moments.
From one of the people who's probably watched more Prelinger films than almost anyone else, a few choice moments that you might not have spotted before. Highly recommended.

A very enjoyable film.. A lot of research would have been done to assemble these classic humour moments. I am requesting a sequel..Essential download for Prelinger fans.
